Morningside Shopping Centre
As one of Jo’burg’s newest developments, Morningside Shopping Centre was developed on an owner-invested and operated model. The concept is based around the more bespoke boutiques where the buyers can personally interact with the boutique owners and, in some cases, the designers giving a highly personalised touch. Some 80 retailers are available inside, as well as a variety of restaurants to recharge your batteries at after a hard day pounding the pavement.rn Extreme Eyewear shades are obligatory in Jo’burg, Paul Smith, Marc Jacobs and Bottega Veneta all offer to preserve your eyesight and keep you looking super-cool in the African sun.rn Infinite 63 opened by two edgy entrepreneurs with an eye for style, Infinite 63 sells luxury denim brands such as True Religion and G Star.
